Netflix: The OA

Anyone watching this? I watched the first episode a bit ago to try it out. Over the course of the episode I think I grew to dislike every single character on the show. The main character is just annoying as all hell. But, for some reason, I am interested in finding out what is going on. It's another one of those purposefully vague shows where you have to figure out what's going on and not much is explained. And that's my weakness unfortunately. It also had some compelling scenes with interesting visuals. I'm going to give it a try even though I found myself cringing at it here and there-and that's only one episode in.

Don't do it! It's all downhill from there. I was literally embarrassed for the actors as they were magic dancing...had to look away.

I get it, I just think the dances themselves were really stupid. This show was treading water for me for an entire season. The characters were crappy but just interesting enough to put up with. The dialogue ranged from average to cringeworthy but a few of the actors were able to pull it off anyway. The plots were flimsy but vague enough to be entertaining and there were intriguing points along the way. The visuals were very, very compelling though. The show looked great. So to have the primary visual of the entire series play out like a group of stereotypical modern dance artists was just too much. I mean, for ****'s sake, they could have just done this and it might have been less goofy:




On the other hand I watched Travelers on NetFlix (one season) and they only really had one dog of an episode. A team member was basically in a coma for the whole episode and it was full of dream sequence bullshit. That was a nice guilty pleasure that I would recommend over The OA. Or even Glitch. That was kind of fun but dragged in its emo moments. I'm currently going through Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. It's holding my interest.

I finished Travelers and liked all but the very end of the finale. There's cliffhangers and there's leaving an audience thinking there must be another ep in the queue somewhere.

I also just finished a show called Beyond on Freeform, which was surprisingly good. It's airing weekly on the channel starting last week, but is also available online and, at least with TWC, on demand. So you can binge all ten episodes. I didn't even realize until after it was over that the creative heads are Tim Kring and David Eick. It's a bit low budget, but I found it creative and engaging. I can't actually think of anything else I've ever watched on the former ABC Family.

Hah, the exact same thing happened to me, I actually said 'WTF?' after the finale looking for the next episode. Did you try Glitch? It has more relationship-y stuff in it and it is more like The OA than Travelers. But it has no Dance Magic! in it at least. And, like Travelers, you know they can keep going with more interesting stories.

My HS sensibilities kick in here.

I've danced this dance with Shane Carruth as far as loving indie creators and, again, I'm waiting it out...

Seems like the premise of the movements are similar to the Native American "Ghost Dance" practice of the 1800s where properly preforming a particular dance would reunite the living and the dead...or something like that. I remember reading something about it a while back.
